Real Madrid left-back Theo Hernandez is reported to be closing in on a move to AC Milan after being spotted with Paolo Maldini.

Real and Milan maintain a good relationship, and, during a recent meeting between the two clubs, reports claim a number of potential transfers were discussed.

Hernandez making the switch to the San Siro appears to be one of them and there is talk that a 20million euros deal is on the verge of being pushed through.

Maldini has just been appointed as technical director at Milan and is in charge of bringing in new signings as the Rossoneri, just like Real, undergo a rebuild.

Maldini and Hernandez have been spotted together in Ibiza, fuelling rumours that a deal is imminent.

Real are happy to let Hernandez head to Milan and there is also talk that midfielder Dani Ceballos could join the Italian side on loan with a view to a permanent move.
